Ken Cuccinelli challenges Virginia’s sodomy ruling
Ken Cuccinelli, Virginia's attorney general, has asked a federal court to reconsider a decision to overturn the state's ban on sodomy, which is currently part of Virginia's “Crimes Against Nature” statute.
Cuccinelli filed a petition with the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals, asking for the full 15-judge court to review a decision made last month by a three-judge panel. The panel ruled 2-1 that the statute is unconstitutional based on the Supreme Court's 2003 decision in Lawrence vs. Texas.
